WARNING WARNING

Make sure you have comment moderation turned on in you blog. For the first time in a long time I have been hit by a number of spam comments. They are not abusive, I believe it is just to get more search engine hits. Of course I don't post them.

Fair winds and following seas

Re: Best sailing blogs of 2014

I really like BLJ's blog.

Dock Six Chronicles

It really shows how a normal guy can successfully own a sailboat. Sounds like a great marina too. I will likely be shoved out on the outer dock myself!

I also like this, as he is OCD (in a good way) about his refit:

The world encompassed

And finally I have found the trials and tribulations of this to be interesting:

Re: Best sailing blogs of 2014

There used to be a blog about a guy that bought a Catalina 30 in northern California . He sailed it down to Mexico , then to the South Pacific . The last I read it he was doing repairs (he hit a reef) . His plan was to get fixed and sail on to New Zealand . Sorry I can't remember the name of it I found out about it from Latitude 38 . Anybody know it ?

Re: Best sailing blogs of 2014

Shameless self plug time - Mine isn't great, and is more a log of me fumbling around refitting my first boat and getting covered in sewage. Hopefully it'll turn into a liveaboard/sailing blog

http://www.tuglife.ca (complete with bad puns).

I'd be happy to add you as a link on mine though - I get around 20-30 hits a day

Of course, I think she is a great writer and photographer. You may too.
